Back in October 2013, the first grumblings that a new game in the classic horror/sci-fi Alien franchise was in the works surfaced. The game had a working title at the time called Alien: Isolation. That working title has been confirmed this week by Sega and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer products to be the official title for the game.
Alien: Isolation promises to take survival horror back to its roots. The game is expected to launch in late 2014. As you know with any video game still in development, that date could easily change. Sega says that the game will capture the tension and horror from the original 1970 flick Alien that made the film a classic.
The game is expected to launch for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 along with PCs. The game is set on a decommissioned trading station on the fringes of space. The player will face a xenomorph as they scavenge the resources they need to stay alive.
Sega isn’t offering much more in the way of detail on the game at this time. They have offered up some screen shots and a few trailers on YouTube for us to check out. This year is the 35th anniversary of the film, it’s still creepy and futuristic looking despite its age.
